blog|@SQLDBA) and I had discussed driving up together, my buddy Dan Taylor (blogY b|@DBABulldog) had decided to join us by mid week, and Karen Lopez (blog|@DataChick) rounded out our cast on Friday.
Dan started his drive at 3:30 in the morning, making it to my house by 4:15, we left around 4:35 to go over to Orlando and pickup Kendal, and then we added Karen to our traveling road show around 6ish. The road trip was one of the great highlights, that made for a very enjoyable day. The conversations flowed like hot coffee, and the coffee flowed like......well hot coffee.
Before I knew it we were getting off the exit and heading over to the scenic campus of the University of North Florida. This wasn't my first time in Jacksonville, but it was the first time I'd been on this University before, Dan had been to this SQL Saturday in the past and was quick to offer up directions of where to go, and at the parking garage, pictured above, we exited the car to make our way down to SQL Saturday!
